WBA super-middleweight champion George Groves takes on Jamie Cox this Saturday in the world boxing super series. Groves is fired up and is looking forward to the bout knowing that if he wins, he gets an even bigger test against Chris Eubank Jnr who knocked out Yildirim on Saturday –
“I am fired up, I mean business, this is another homecoming. I won the belt in Sheffield but this is London, this is Wembley Arena, this is a happy hunting ground for me. This is my chance to shine. It’s the first part of a three-part series and this is where it begins.
“There is no room for mistakes, there’s no ‘I’ll come again’, it’s all nothing now. But I’ll be damned if I have anything other than a clear victory, or a knockout victory.”
Groves knows whats at stake and is keen to get in the ring with Eubank Jnr in what would surely be a stadium fight –
“What I am locked into, in addition of making sure there are no slip ups against Cox, is the discussions about where I might fight Eubank. Chelsea is being mentioned. That’s my team and I would love to fight there,” Groves said.
“There’s a chance they won’t want to risk damaging the Stamford Bridge pitch and so we’re also looking at probably Fulham football ground (Craven Cottage), maybe QPR’s Loftus Road. Fighting outside in winter wouldn’t bother me. I like outdoor fights. It can get really hot in arenas under the art lights.”
